The chemical industry in the Northern Netherlands comprises two clusters. One cluster (Delfzijl) is based on salt and gas and the other cluster (Emmen) is based on plastics and polymers. The main focus is cost sharing and greening raw materials.
Two clusters are present in the region:
Delfzijl: salt based chemical industry and specialty chemicals. The Delfzijl cluster for the future is focused on green and CO2 Chemistry. Delfzijl is one of the two Dutch clusters producing chlorine.
Emmen: Plastics and polymers.
Both clusters have space for co-siting or green field investments. Both Delfzijl and Emmen are connected to the Dutch and the German market by road, rail and barges.
Utilities such as electricity, steam, nitrogen and instrument air are available by pipe line grid. Delfzijl has a salt water purification facility and a pipe line grid between Delfzijl and the deep sea port of Eemshaven is under development and will be operational in 2013.
